A resale store in Madison isn't letting a fire that caused $500,000 in damage stand in the way of its success.
Boomerangs on Sherman Avenue is celebrating its grand re-opening at its original location this weekend.
Since the July fire, Boomerangs has not only rebuilt but expanded its business.
The store is now occupying more space and houses more clothes, furniture and other used items than before.
That's all good news for the store's customers.
"I tend to want to give my money to people who need nice clothes for a reasonable price," said Denise Mueller. "And that's why I like this stuff. Because I like things, and I can't afford to pay for it."
The store, which is run by Door Creek Church, said it has seen an increase in community donations.
Profits go to the Salvation Army, The Road Home solutions for homeless families and the Nehemiah organization.
